Absolutely beautiful state park, plenty of great camping spots and cabins, biking (off road) and hiking trails, and of course, picturesque Gulf of Mexico. Other 30a locations just a short ride away.

This beach has an amazing contradiction of nature. Beautifulwhite sand beaches, huge sand dunes that overlook coastal lakes found no where else. Has to be seen to be believed. And all for $5 entry fee!

This park is like a jewel, with it's sandy white beaches. I walked over to Seaside via the beach today. It was a tad windy but warm enough not to be bone-chilling. The waters of the Gulf were angry today, chasing the plovers up and down the beach. It seemed almost remote there were so few people there, but the... More

Grafton SP is a wonderful surprise. The beach is STUNNING, and in the off-season practically yours alone. The sand is white as snow, and beach undeveloped where the state park borders it. We walked the beach at high tide and low. We saw an unexpected amount of wildlife. Bald eagles, a Great Blue Heron up close and personal (5 feet... More

The newer section has graveled sites with sewer and 50 amp. Excellent place to enjoy nature. Only drawback was red tide a couple days while we were there this time. It... More

Loved the biking paths---you literally do not even need to get in your car; you can ride for miles and the proximity to tons of great shops & restaurants. The beaches here are the most beautiful in... More

Escape the rush of the beach and take in some local history and friendly staff at this hidden gem on the coast.$4 to get in per car load and worth it.
